Inclusion in education
Education is not only essential for personal growth, wellbeing and equal opportunity, but a legal right for everyone in Australia. In Tasmania, the Education Act (2016) contains laws that align with relevant Articles of the United Nations Human Rights Convention on the Rights of the Child. This means that the Department of Education are legally obliged to ensure that all students, including those with disability, can participate equally in education. This is also called inclusion. Education in Australia is free in Government schools, compulsory for every child, and is provided to children over a 13 year period, from the age of 5. Education is an ordinary part of life, should be accessible and inclusive, and provided at a recognised standard no matter where you live in Australia.
